AN INVITINGLY warm pre-spring day saw a strong number of players arrive for the club-sponsored fourball stableford pairs with secret partners.

Cynthia Draper scored a hole-in-one on number 10, the third such feat this year, while on number 1 Helen Ricciardi put her second shot in the hole for an eagle - congratulations to both women.

Adrian Martin and Keith Rule won the competition with a combined 74 points on a countback from Blake Dowling and partner Joan Wright, with a number of rundowns. Dave Robinson and Vicki McAulay won the best nine holes with 38 points.

The A Division pinshots went to Mark McAulay (2.01m) on 1&10 and Dave Robinson (3.43m) on 4&13. For the B Division Adrian Martin (2.75m) won the pinshot on 4&13 and Ken Albion the approach on 1&10. Cynthia Draper naturally won the Ladies' approach with her hole-in-one.

Next week is Monthly Medal and players are reminded to bring a plate for an after game snack. Here is also a reminder for Match Play qualifiers in both singles and pairs to complete their rounds, some yet to play the first one.


THE two Vicki's enjoyed the 3 club stroke event, with Vicki McAulay winning from Vicki Wyeth by two shots with a score of 71 nett. Coralie Volgyesi won a ball for most shots.

Seven ladies travelled to Bundaberg on Sunday, August 24, for their Ladies' Open Day. Vicki Wyeth enjoyed her day out winning the C Grade competition on 35 points and also the major raffle - a money tree! Monica Madsen and Joan Wright claimed approach shots.

This Thursday and Saturday, we play for the September Monthly Goblets.


IN SPITE of some notable absences, another strong field contested the stroke versus par competition, the first round of play for the Cooper Cup.

Vicki McAulay scored plus 4 to be the overall winner on the day. Neil Rieck with plus 2 won the A Division from visitor Ken Stevens on plus 1, with Margaret Dennett next on minus 1. Keith Rule won the best nine holes on plus 1.

Larry Pershouse won the B Division with plus 2 on a countback from Joan Wright, with Rose Cochrane next on plus 1. Ed Connell won the best nine with plus 4!

Approaches were won by Neil Rieck, 0.1 from the hole and Vicki McAulay on 0.86m.

Vicki led the Chook Run with 28 nett, from Ed Connell (29), Joy Cartner (31), Larry Pershouse (32), Joan Wright and Roger Draper (33) on spin-offs.

Next week back to our favourite, the single stableford - see you there for the 12 noon hit-off.


TODAY we had 22 members take the field with for the first time this year five ladies taking the field.

Most players recorded good scores although some of us should have stayed in bed or taken up crochet, no names no pack drill.

The winner today was Len (never win anything) Stallard with a credible 24 points and losing to thunderous applause 4.5 off his handicap. Second was Bill Long with 22 and losing 2.6 and third was Bob (Banana Bob) Fraser with 21 points and losing 1.4. Bob also managed to take out the B Grade Longest Drive.

Rose Cochrane won the B Grade Approach on the 10th with Peter (Mac) Macauley winning the Combined nearest the Pin on the 13th. Rhonda Zahn won the Ladies Nearest the Pin on the 15th with a great shot and reached a pivotal point of her game with her first ever Birdie and well done. Dave Durie last but not least won the Men's Approach on the 15th.

Next week we are playing the Eagles Nest at Isis over 18 holes with a lunch after the Game. Tee off time will be 8.00am to allow for the Eagles Nest players to travel up from Hervey Bay. It will be a Stroke and Putt game.

Don't forget to put your names down for the PINK Ball Day on September 28 to aid Prostate Cancer research. Teams of three are needed for the game and rules will be available to all on the day.

Next Sunday I will have a rundown of those members who have scored points in the Player of the year Competition for those needing to know how they are going. Also next week we will have the final game for this quarter for the Golden Circle Prize with Dave Durie holding the closest distance at the moment of 1.44m.
